5th Joint ECMWF/ESA/EUMETSAT School on Atmospheric Composition - 14-15 and 21-22 Sept - Open to all

The Fifth joint training course on Atmospheric Composition, organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) with the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) is already underway. 

The school presents the state-of-the-art in atmospheric composition monitoring and modelling with a focus on chemistry and climate. It aims to provide an end-to-end overview of observations, remote sensing, modelling and science questions enhancing the capacity to access and analyse state-of-the-art datasets. The course also aims to foster collaboration amongst participants and encourage the development of individual and team projects using the data, resources and methodologies presented.

The school is of interest for early-career scientists, researchers from academia and research institutes, young scientists from industry, and anyone interested in atmospheric composition monitoring and modeling.


A zoom link to access the online session is below, along with a schedule of the lectures. The lectures will also be recorded and will be available from the website.
